It seems like there’s no end to the stream of new information coming for the latest entry of the Final Fantasy series, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Today’s info comes from a new extended trailer for the game which shows more characters, together with some returning faces, ending with a release window for the game.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will finally bring an end to the Lightning Saga, as Square Enix calls the Final Fantasy XIII related titles: after being a supporting character in XIII-2, Lightning will come back as the main character as she’ll try to save the world from destuction. Hers will be a battle against time since she’ll only have 13 days before the end comes, a nod to the thirteen days before the Purge seen in Final Fantasy XIII. Light will be the only playable character in the game which will also feature an entirely new setting, the Active Time Battle system fans have come to love in Final Fantasy XIII and a new spin on the Paradigm Shift system, tweaked to make it work with a single character. Light’s abilities will change depending on her own clothes, granting player the ability to customize her to their likings.
Judging from the end of the trailer, which can be seen here, the game will be launching this Autumn, as many have speculated.
